How to Watch Yankees vs. Indians

Share

Cleveland Indians designated hitter Edwin Encarnacion might be able to return for Game 5 of his team's American League Division Series against the New York Yankees on Wednesday night. But it was on the wet Yankee Stadium field where the Indians really flopped, committing a season-high four errors that marked a franchise record for a postseason game and led to six unearned runs.

Especially considering the Indians will expend their best arm, Corey Kluber, in Wednesday night's Game 5, which presumably would take the AL Cy Young Award candidate out of the running to start in an ALCS game until a Game 3 on Monday.

Justin Verlander, who after his 40-pitch relief outing Monday is likeliest to pitch Saturday's Game 2, didn't face the Yankees in the regular season and was hit around in two of his four starts against the Indians this year while a member of the Detroit Tigers.

The Yankees won, 1-0.

"He's probably available for a couple innings if I need him", Girardi said of Chapman.

The deal, brokered by Egypt, follows a cabinet meeting in Gaza last week, marking the return to work of the unity government. The cabinet expressed its readiness to assume all duties in Gaza with the approval of concerned factions.

And you had to wonder if those arduous outings affected both guys in Game 2, when Green gave up a grand slam to Francisco Lindor in the sixth and Robertson gave up the game-tying solo homer to Jay Bruce in the eighth - the first run he'd allowed since August 24.

"We've got a young team and they're hungry", Severino said.

The Cleveland Indians have played 166 games so far.

Handed an early 5-0 lead and showing lots of emotion on the mound, the fired-up righty struck out nine in seven innings.

Then the Tribe was terrible in Monday's 7-3 loss.

When they got home, the mother didn't realize her son was missing and ended up falling asleep while watching a movie, Monson said. Police said a mother didn't realize until the next morning that she had left her 3-year-old at a corn maze the night before.

A rainy day in the Big Apple prevented both teams from taking batting practice on the field. A frustrated Bauer gestured with his hand when he didn't get a strike-three call on a checked swing by Aaron Hicks, who soon singled home a run.

However, on the next play, outfielder Jay Bruce lined out to shortstop, and on his dive toward second base to avoid being doubled up, Encarnacion planted his right foot, but momentum kept him going, which caused his ankle to buckle underneath the weight. Jason Kipnis is 4-for-18 with a triple. Those impressive numbers included a 2-0 mark with a 1.59 ERA against NY that left him 5-1 with a 1.80 ERA in seven career regular-season starts vs. the Yankees. And we know we're facing a good team and we know we're facing a tough pitcher.

The likely Cy Young victor was candid when asked what he needs to do better in Game 5.

"Our goal is always to win the next game", said Francona.

Cleveland's 2-0 series lead seemed to vanish in a NY minute. New York's vaunted bullpen squandered the lead and the Yankees lost 9-8 in 13 innings. "We realize that. You've got to fight through it together and that's what we intend to do".
